Career Transitions Forum
The Career Transitions Forum (CTF) is a unique series of lectures, presentations, and networking activities designed to support professionals who are transitioning in their careers.
Professionals from recruitment firms, corporations, and the local community will present a broad array of job search strategies and tips, with a different topic presented each week. New participants can join any week.
Free Career Advising
Career Advising is available from corporate executives for those who have attended at least one CTF session. It is strongly recommended that those requesting counseling complete an HRD resume class.
To schedule an appointment, submit the CTF Career Advising Request form, which is available at CTF meetings on Thursdays from 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM at Trinity Baptist Church in Raleigh.

What our students are saying...
I have accepted an offer from Cisco as a Marketing Manager in their Enterprise Networking group. You can say that “networking” will be my job and not only a means for career advancement!
I am really thankful to you and other leaders and participants of Career Transition Forum group for their tremendous support, encouragement, willingness to help, opening rolodex’s, and insights into the modern hiring process. I truly learned from the wonderful speakers you invited, and from others’ experiences.
I am happy to extend help to anyone in the group to the extent I can.

Today, I landed a permanent position at IAT Insurance as a Technical Project Manager/Process & Change Manager. I am really excited! It's truly a dream job for me where I will use all of my certifications. I could not have done it without your support and advice! Especially these 2 simple steps that REALLY made me a stand-out candidate:
- Networked with employed people in my field (which led to a friendship with an IAT IT staff member --> which led to my sincere interest in IAT --> which led to a referral!)
- Shared stories about specific technical projects I managed that are directly related to projects that IAT is planning to undertake now.
